Trump Blasts Fake News Media For Burying Story on Indictment of Obama White House Legal Counsel Greg Craig

President Trump blasted the “Corrupt News” on Friday morning for burying the indictment of Obama’s White House counsel Greg Craig.

“President Obama’s top White House lawyer, Gregory B. Craig, was indicted yesterday on very serious charges. This is a really big story, but the Fake News New York Times didn’t even put it on page one, rather page 16. Washington Post not much better, “tiny” page one. Corrupt News!” Trump said in a tweet.

Former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges stemming from Mueller’s probe related to work he did for Ukraine in 2012.

Craig, 74, served as legal counsel for Obama from 2009 to 2010 and worked as senior legal counsel to Bill Clinton during his impeachment.

A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment Thursday on charges of making false statements and concealing information about his Ukrainian lobbying efforts.

Greg Craig worked with Paul Manafort, but since he’s a long time Clinton-Obama fixer, the media ignored the story.

NewsBusters reported that the combined airtime allowed by ABC, CBS and NBC for Greg Craig’s indictment was a whopping one minute and 15 seconds.

NewsBusters pointed out that NBC didn’t even mention that Greg Craig worked for Obama and Clinton, rather, the network concentrated on Craig’s ties to Paul Manafort.

How does this square up with the mainstream media’s coverage of Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort?

According to NewsBusters, following the indictments of Paul Manafort, 60% of their airtime was dedicated to covering Manafort and Rick Gates.

The fake news media is truly the enemy of the people.
